USACE VIDEO: Rebuilding Absecon Inlet Seawall
- Business & Finance
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Philadelphia District, and its contractor J. Fletcher Creamer & Son completed the Absecon Inlet seawall and boardwalk project in April of 2018.
Work involved building the seawall along two previously unprotected sections of the Atlantic City shoreline and rebuilding the historic boardwalk behind those two sections.
The Absecon Island coastal scheme is one of several along the New Jersey coastline being funded by $1.2 billion appropriated by Congress to rebuild and strengthen the state’s beaches following Superstorm Sandy in October 2012.
